Chaulmoogra Oil - Uses And Side Effects

What is chaulmoogra oil ?

Modern leprosy drugs wouldn't exist without chaulmoogra oil, which comes from the seeds of Hydnocarpus wightiana, H. anthelmintica, and Taraktogenos kurzii. This herb was discovered in the 1920s by Joseph Rock, a botanist who'd heard that a certain plant he'd never seen could cure leprosy. While searching for the plant throughout the Far East and India, he obtained some seeds in an Indian market. Rock learned that they came from a tall local tree with leathery leaves and white flowers. He collected the seeds and naturalized the plant In Hawaii. About 20 years later, active components from the seeds provided the basic materials for the first leprosy drugs.
